I needed a little somethin' somethin' on the corner of a piece of furniture. Something with a little height, but not huge and something I didn't mind if my 3 year old knocked off and destroyed.
Enter Goodwill and Dollar Tree items!
I started with this. I'm always on the lookout for urns at Goodwill. Soooo many great uses! This one is a FTD floral urn. It was originally a very dirty off white. You could tell it was pretty old. Cleaned it up, painted it black...and filled it with floral foam.
Pulled out some spanish moss I also found at Goodwill some time ago and these moss rocks from the Dollar Tree. (I think I used 3 bags.)
From there, I glued down the spanish moss and then started stacking and gluing in the moss rocks. The moss rocks are VERY light, basically styrofoam covered in fake moss. So you really have to glue it down tightly since they have no weight of their own.
Here's the finished product! Easy filler for a table. Two of these would be great to frame a mantel or use as centerpieces on a long table. In the fall, add beautiful fall leaves instead of moss.
